During the MRI they'll be getting coordinates so they can aim perfectly for the biopsy. The biopsy will require a craniotomy, and the neurosurgeon will be removing three different pieces of abnormal brain tissue for testing. We may get preliminary information, but it's unlikely we'll get definitive answers sooner than a few weeks. Please pray for Dr. Smyth's hands and protection of Ava's surrounding brain tissue. Please pray for clear information from the biopsy and wisdom for Matt and I as we work with the doctors to decide what to do with the information once we have it.
Meanwhile, Miss M has a stomach bug, so she's gone to recover and we're reworking things for tomorrow so Matt can be here too. Please pray for wellness for our sweet helper!
One moment at a time, God provides.
We wait. We rest. We depend. We trust.
And we take big, deep breaths.
